Digital signature for leasing contract possible for the first time in Switzerland
Zurich, November 2020 - Switzerland's largest car leasing platform gowago.ch and Intrum AG announce their partnership, making it possible for the first time in Switzerland to sign a car leasing contract digitally. This digital signature is recognised by FINMA and is therefore legally valid. Customers can now lease their new car on the gowago.ch platform at a transparent monthly fixed price without having to visit the dealer in person to sign the contract. In addition, the vehicle can be delivered directly to the customer's home on request - an offer that is being taken advantage of in times of the COVID 19 pandemic.
As part of this partnership, Intrum is expanding its range of services and driving the digitalisation of processes in the automotive industry, always in compliance with all necessary safety standards and regulations. At the same time, gowago.ch benefits from the financial services provider's comprehensive expertise in simplifying the sales process.
Rutger Verhoef, CEO and co-founder of gowago.ch, comments on the partnership: "We are very pleased about the partnership with Intrum, not least because it gives us a unique selling point in the Swiss car leasing market. Furthermore, the digital signing of contracts on our platform is a very welcome innovation, especially for dealers, as they can now easily serve customers from all over Switzerland". Martin Honegger, Business Development Director at Intrum AG, comments: "We are proud that together with our partner gowago.ch we are able to take the car leasing market to a new digital level".
